No matter what happens as a result of his schemes, Gumball always bounces back, even if the only thing he learns from his mistakes is how to make more of them.

Ten-year-old Darwin is a goldfish. He's also Gumball's best friend. Whatever Gumball is up to, Darwin's in on it too. While he's very loyal, Darwin may miss the nuances of some situations primarily because he's inexperienced in the ways of the world. Darwin used to be the family pet until he sprouted legs and joined Gumball's class at school. He still sleeps in a fishbowl, even though he's a little too big for it. He's innocent and gentle and he's always there to support Gumball when things are at their worst.
